More Predator news has come our way, and it’s pretty juicy! We all knew that Robert Rodriguez was producing the reboot of the popular sci-fi franchise. But, what we didn’t know is that he will also direct the feature. There has been confirmation that he will helm the updated film, which he plans on calling Predators. According to IESB, Rodriguez spoke about Predators, and several of other upcoming films at a press conference he gave at his Troublemaker Studios.
The press conference was held with several Texas law makers in attendance to sign the HB 873, which greatly improves the film incentive program for the state. While there, he dropped a line regarding several features on his upcoming slate.
“I’m going to be able to shoot my upcoming Machete here, a sci-fi action film called Nervewrackers, a re-boot of the Predator series called Predators, and a couple of smaller movies called Sin City 2 and The Jetsons.”
What a roster?! Once again, Sin City 2 keeps rearing it’s head. No matter the drama circling that project he and Frank Miller will not let it go. That’s one of the reasons I love Rodriguez. He is all over the place but in a good way. Amongst his list of properties, I have to admit the Jetsons movie is what I really want to see. I know he’s done his share of family films with the Spy Kids, franchise but the Jetsons is a part of America’s cinematic fabric. Those are childhood memories he’s stepping on.
Which one of Rodriguez’s upcoming films are you looking forward to seeing?
